Hi! I’m Ellie
I have a passion for teaching my clients how to achieve and maintain physical and emotional wellness that lasts a lifetime. I began my own journey into alternative health with a personal health crisis that forced me to quit my job and focus on healing. Working in a factory with various toxic chemical exposures brought my body to its knees. After cat scans, ultrasounds, two emergency trips to the hospital and the suggestion of exploratory surgery to diagnose my “unknown” illness I took the plunge, quit my job and never looked back. Within one month of following a healing, whole foods diet along with other natural health therapies (which I now teach to others) my health was well on the way to optimum.
Now I rarely experience any symptoms of imbalanced health. My energy levels allow me to live a very busy life with multiple interests without experiencing fatigue, I don’t get headaches or heartburn, my joints never ache, my hormone levels are balanced, and I’m happy 99% of the time. I don’t experience nausea, brain fog or allergies of any kind. I haven’t needed or used pharmaceutical drugs since beginning my journey and I’m always able to manage any temporary health crisis with natural methods. This is a state of near-optimum health that everyone has the ability to reach.
Over the years I gained certifications and took volumes of training in holistic nutrition, personal training, Reiki, energy medicine, spirituality, sports nutrition and EFT.
I won’t say that my knowledge in nutrition, exercise, spirituality, law of attraction and energy medicine weren’t all important pieces of my journey, but I can easily say that adding EFT to my knowledge base allowed me to overcome my own self-sabotage. As I broke through my own limiting beliefs and fears I found that much of my “knowledge” became “wisdom”. I define knowledge as knowing what to do and wisdom as the real-life application of that knowledge. Needless to say, my life changed for the better when I learned how to tap away the unresolved emotional issues that were keeping me stuck. My own issues with food and body image gradually faded. My self-esteem and my sense of purpose in this world went through the roof. My personal negative beliefs, wiring and subconscious patterns became navigable in a way they had never been previously.
These days my love of learning has blossomed into something I can barely tame. In conjunction with my health coaching and EFT practice I’m constantly exploring new areas that will make me a better coach and ultimately, a better human being.
I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned with you!
